    More Than 900 Criminal Aliens, Immigration Fugitives Removed

    More Than 900 Criminal Aliens, Immigration Fugitives Removed from the US

    Jim Kouri

    More than 900 criminal aliens, immigration fugitives, and immigration violators have been removed from the United States or are facing deportation today following a three-week enforcement surge by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Fugitive Operations Teams in California.
    During the special operation, which concluded late yesterday, ICE officers located and arrested a total of 905 immigration violators throughout the state, including 137 here in the San Diego area. Of those arrested locally, 73 were immigration fugitives, aliens who have ignored final orders of deportation or who returned to the United States illegally after being removed. More than 40 percent of the aliens taken into custody in this area had criminal histories in addition to being in the country illegally.

    Among those arrested by the Fugitive Operations Teams locally was a 30-year-old Mexican national who was convicted in 1997 for robbery and sentenced to four years in state prison. Last year, Cesar Hernandez-Gallardo lost his appeal to remain in the United States and failed to depart after being ordered deported by an immigration judge. ICE officers also arrested a 37-year-old Mexican national at his residence in Escondido, whose criminal record includes a prior conviction for burglary. He was ordered deported last June and lost his appeal to remain in the United States last month. The other criminal arrests included violent crimes for assault with a deadly weapon, carjacking, domestic violence and sexual assault.
    In addition to the local Fugitive Operations Teams, ICE officers from the agency’s teams in Los Angeles and San Francisco were temporarily deployed to the area to assist with this enforcement action.

    ICE’s Fugitive Operations Teams are tasked with identifying and arresting foreign nationals who have ignored final orders of deportation or have returned to the United States illegally after being removed. The teams prioritize cases involving immigration violators who pose a threat to national security and community safety. These include child sexual exploiters, suspected gang members, and those who have convictions for violent crimes.
    “ICE is committed to restoring integrity to this country’s immigration system and that means ensuring that the removal orders handed down by the nation’s immigration courts are carried out,

    More than 27,100 apprehensions so far this year

    [quote="Texan123"]Exactly. Where are the reports of large groups of border crossers being arrested? It appears the Border Patrol can only handle 1 or 2 at a time
    --------------------------------------------

    Border Patrol officials say 27,100 apprehensions were reported in the El Paso sector alone, as of Aug. 1 for the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30 . . .

    Apprehensions are down 16% this year because fewer people are attempting to enter the country because of the bad economy of the U.S. making fewer jobs available and the new border fences are making it harder to enter the U.S.

    That's a good start. They have been catching all kinds of them in Florida as well but on a regular basis. I wish they could come and do a raid in my condo complex. ICE has picked a few of them up but they should get them all. I bet they would have at least 200. Between the Eastern Europeans and Hispanic who live there and the cleaning and maintenance staff there would be several bus loads.

    USA TODAY version of this info

    Immigration sting nets 905 arrests in Calif.

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says agents have arrested more than 900 people in California on immigration violations during a three-week sting targeting people who ignored deportation orders.
    The agency said Friday that 495 of the 905 people arrested were targeted in the operation. The other 410 just happened to be on the scene when agents arrived.

    Northern California accounted for the most arrests, with 441. The Los Angeles area followed with 327 arrests. The San Diego area accounted for the other 137.

    ICE agents increasingly have been tracking people who ignore deportation orders. When authorities visit a suspect's last known address and find other immigrants, they ask them to prove they are in the country
